Va. Launches Energy Saving Program

July 28, 2010

Virginia is launching a program to help people statewide reduce the amount of electricity they use.

The program called "Virginia Energy Sense" is being kicked off Wednesday by the State Corporation Commission.

Officials say the program uses tools, resources and outreach that together have never been used before in a state-led energy education program to encourage a collective reduction in electricity demand.

The General Assembly adopted a goal of reducing Virginia electricity demand by ten percent by 2022.

The Website at the core of the program offers step-by-step videos and budget-friendly tips. It also lets Virginians automatically track their energy consumption, compare their use with others and earn rewards.
